Mazatlan, Mexico /
A solid performance by Andy Otero and a two-run producer Robel Garcia double that broke the tie in the seventh inning gave the Águilas de Dominican Republic the 2-0 win over the Caribes of Venezuela to keep the unbeaten 4-0 and leave the Venezuelan team on the brink of elimination in the Caribbean Series 2021.
Andy Otero he completed 5.1 innings of five hits, one transfer and three strikeouts. After resting his bullpen, manager Félix Fermín turned to the bullpen with Luis Castillo, Darío Álvarez, Jumbo Díaz and Fernando Abad, who, after a shaky outing against Mexico in which he received two runs, closed the door to seal the victory of Dominican team.
Caribs had big chances mounting the game’s biggest threat in the seventh inning, before the Eagles score the two winning runs, by loading the bases with two outs, but Niuman Romero he was dominated with a fly to right field and thereafter, the remaining six batters were retired in order.
While the Eagles of Dominican Republic will face Colombia in the last qualifying day with their unbeaten 4-0, the classification of Venezuela now depends on the result of tonight between Mexico and Panama. A victory for the Feds would keep them with a chance of advancing to the semifinals, but a loss would put them on the brink of elimination.
